Love Argyll Holiday Property Management
If you own a holiday rental property in Argyll or you’re thinking of renting your Argyll property, Love Argyll Holiday Property Management offers a full-service solution that takes care of all aspects of rental from promotion to booking to turn-arounds and guest communications.
Love Argyll specialises in letting prestige holiday properties in Argyll and Bute.
Our holiday rental service frees you from the hassle of managing a holiday let, and delivers strong occupancy year-round as well as high yields.
Our full-service solution includes fastidious cleaning, customer communication, guest welcome in person, online booking, deposit management and digital marketing plus payment reconciliation.
We go the extra mile to present properties to five-star-plus standards, while adding special touches and a personal service that ensures your guests become repeat bookers and enthusiastic reviewers of your rental property.
We provide expert advice on holiday let insurance and business rates. And we also manage bespoke commissions to prepare properties for letting, where we do all the heavy-lifting, or we can provide owners with advice and actionable plans.
Our services include:
We advise on pricing your holiday rental across the seasons and help you forecast likely occupancy, costs and income. In addition, we manage booking terms and conditions, plus terms of deposits and payment and optimal turn-around dates and times. We can put in place information packs for guests, in addition to safety essentials such as fire extinguishers, first aid kit, smoke alarms and CO2 detectors.
We can advise you on essential preparedness of internal fitments, furnishing, accessories and tech, so your rental property is perfectly presented for guests. And, if you need help with this key task, we can step in and manage with your approval.
We also help prepare enticing property listing descriptions with photos and descriptions to encourage bookings. And we can write-up and bind guest information packs tailored to your property and its location.
Cleaning and guest welcome:
Our fastidious cleaning regime ensures properties are immaculately cleaned before guests arrive. Within our team are local cleaning specialists, who use only quality, eco-friendly cleaning products. We also provide a laundry service for property turnaround, so bedding, linen and towels are perfectly presented. We can arrange Good to Go certification; this is VisitScotland’s COVID-19 compliant cleaning checklist.
For welcoming guests, we provide a personal and friendly service as well as advice to help guests get the most out of their stay. We also leave guests a welcome hamper of local produce and a starter pack of essentials. If we’re unable to welcome guests personally, we leave keys in a code-protected key box and contact them by phone to ensure they’ve arrived safely and are familiarised with the property.
We also remain on standby throughout your guests’ stay to deal with the usual queries that arise or to troubleshoot any emergencies, such as power outage, plumbing or other urgent maintenance issues. These things happen and we have the experience and resource to deal with promptly. And we check-in with guests via courtesy messages during their stay in your property.
Online listings and bookings:
Before listing your property online, we will discuss with you the most suitable booking platforms. There’s our own exclusive and highly popular website loveargyll.com, which generates a steady stream of direct bookings, plus further premium holiday let platforms from partners such as Canopy & Stars or Sawdays. We guide home-owners through the key considerations around where to list their property.
Our online booking system enables fast, frictionless and secure booking, with automated email responses to bookers (for confirmation of deposit, reminder of final payment due etc) plus full back-end management which we take care of. We create one core listing for your property, which is then listed on the loveargyll.com site and also distributed on selected holiday let portals.
If you prefer a more discrete and vetted booking process, we can take care of this too.
We are marketing experts and run highly efficient and responsive social and remarketing campaigns that turn lookers to bookers. We are in frequent communication with our core database of holiday rental customers acquired over the past 5 years, who are frequently repeat bookers.
We’re also highly proficient in SEO and content creation for web and social. And we manage social posting with inspiring updates about properties we let on the Love Argyll social channels (we have 3,700 Facebook followers).
